Review of Abilene

manchegotoastThe Golden Dish has reviewed Abilene.

We started off with the appetizer, Manchego Toast.  The dish was inspired  by a chef Colgan knew in New Orleans. House made focaccia, lightly toasted, is topped with the melted Spanish Manchego cheese, with judicious hints of garlic and shallot and topped with a duxelle of mushrooms soaking in a sauce of Sherry and mushroom broth.   I could have this ten times over and never tire of the dish.
